If you are like me, you have tons of basil growing in your garden. I love making this easy pesto sauce which you can put over almost anything, pasta, roasted veggies, sweet potatoes. The possibilities are endless. Plus, your kiddos will never taste the secret veggies added in the sauce!
Toast nuts and whole garlic cloves (this is my secret to lessen the pungency of the garlic). Add nuts, peeled garlic cloves, basil, spinach and nutritional yeast to a food processor until minced, with the food processor still running slowly drizzle olive oil until the mixture is smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with pasta or roasted veggies.
